You can add additional subscribers to our emailed release notes here.

The following feature will be live for all services on the 11th of March.

Centre Reviews in Home App

Centres that use Home and Space can now get reviews from their families directly in Home app!

When a review is submitted, it is saved onto your centre’s Space dashboard so that you can view, manage and respond to your reviews as they come in. This feature will be enabled by default for all centres that currently use Space, but rest assured, you are in complete control of both the Home app reviews and your Space listings:

  1. You can disable the in-app reviews at any time via a provider admin toggle in Office → Service Settings → App Settings → Reviews

  2. You’re also able to control the visibility of your reviews via the Reviews tab within your Space service dashboard. This means you can hide all reviews with the click of a button. See the video above for more details.

In order for Home app reviews to be enabled for your service automatically:

Bulk Fee Adjustment Enhancements

We’re adding two new filters to our Gap Fee Adjustments page to help services affected by COVID: Room and Day of the Week. If your service closes for a day, or needs to close a room for COVID-related reasons, you can easily waive your parents' fees.
